Event Description

Cancer Awareness Among Hispanic
Key Speaker:
Maria Gomes, American Cancer Society,
N.E. Div., Meriden
Cristina Lima, MSW
Director of Latino Outreach CancerCare of CT

Cancer awareness is a critical issue in our
community, as many Hispanics do not have
adequate access to education and care. Cancer
screenings, clinical trials and learning
about cancer risks and treatment options can
make the difference in survival outcomes. Unfortunately,
cultural issues and language barriers
have prevented many Hispanics from
taking advantage of these life-saving practices.
Opportunities clearly exist to increase
awareness about cancer as well as programs
and services that support cancer patients,
survivors and their families.

Lunch will be provided

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
